    In the Walking Dead board game, you'll fight your way
    through zombie-infested Atlanta with fellow survivors. Grab
    some weapons to clear a path. Visit destinations like the
    department store, and old folk's home. Find the tools you'll
    need to live another day. Scrounge for sweet weapons like a
    Shotgun or Crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies,
    but watch your back. When supplies start running low, it's
    every man for himself. If you can make it back to camp with
    enough gear to defend yourself and those you still care for,
    you win!

  • Worst Case Scenario. In the Worst-Case Scenario Survival

  • Zombies Board Game: It's come to this. You're trapped in
    the middle of nowhere inside a rundown shack surrounded by
    zombies. Your cell phone doesn't get reception and the land
    lines just emit a constant busy signal. Your only hope for
    survival is to get to one of the abandoned stores so you can
    get a battery for the CB radio in the shack and a shotgun to
    help you survive the trip back. Good luck with that. Includes
    spooky gameboard, fourteen 2" tall, plastic game pieces,
    thirty-four cards and three dice.

  • Zombie playing cards. Play cards with the walking dead.
    There are hundreds of games possible with a deck of cards,
    but owning a deck of Zombie playing cards is certainly more
    entertaining. Did you know many 72-hour bugout bags
    include playing cards to help pass time in a crisis? These
    funny playing cards have zombie phrases on every card and
    zombie characters.

Know the rules of the game!
The only real rule is to have fun. Have at least a dozen board
games in your preps to avoid boredom. Ensure that at least a few
of them are new so that you'll have something interesting for the
kids to pass away the time. Be sure also to have games above
the age levels your kids play today. In this way, your preps will
serve them into the future. You might also use them as gifts for

Board games are a great thing to pickup at garage sales (just
make sure to check that all the pieces are still included in the

A word on laser tag and paint ball...
Want to head out for some family fun? Laser tag will get the
whole family more prepared in a spirited way (and it won't hurt
like paintball does). Certainly paintball would help give a more
realistic scenario, so if you've got some rough and ready teens
then go for it. The military uses a kind of paint ball for training
practice (simulation is with hard rubber balls), so why not

Happy endings..
A prepper family that plays together stays together. Keep
everyone safe at home and together. Play more games. Don't be
bored in the bunker!

  • 5 Second rule: It should be easy to name 3 breeds of dogs,
    but can you do it under the pressure of 5 seconds twisting
    down, and with the other players staring at you, waiting for
    you to get flustered? Time's not on your side, so just say
    what comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping as
    time twirls down on the unique twisted timer. It's all in good
    fun with the fast-paced game where you have to Just Spit it
    Out. You simply must play 5 Second Rule!

  • Armageddon Preppin Doomsday Readiness Game. This
    goal of this 2-4 player card game is simple, keep your family
    alive and be the lone survivors of the cataclysmic disasters!
    Each player, in Armageddon Preppin, is the head of a
    household trying to survive an onslaught of disasters. Every
    round you must decide how many of your family members
    will go out searching for supplies, and how many will stay
    sheltered. Family members who are sheltered, are safe from
    disasters. Those that go out, might not come back. Next you
    draw 1 card from any area pile of your choice for each
    unsheltered family member and place them into your hand.
    After you've drawn your cards, you take care of your upkeep
    by discarding 1 food card and 1 water card. If you can't, then
    you lose a family member to starvation or dehydration. Once
    each player has taken a turn, the last player chooses a
    disaster card from the disaster deck of their choice. The red
    ones are the worst. The disasters effect everyone at the
    same time. To survive the effects, you need to use the
    surplus cards you've collected in your hand. For example:
    The Oil Crisis Disaster card is drawn. It takes 1 shelter and 1
    food away from everyone, or else you lose 1 family member.
    In my hand I have 2 Waters, 1 Food, a Generator and a Gas
    Mask. I will discard my food and generator to survive the
    disaster. After everyone has dealt with the disaster, the
    next round begins starting with the player to the left of the
    person who just drew the disaster. The game ends when
    there is only one player left, crowning them the most
